Spring Foraging Walk
April 30 @ 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Explore wild plants that you can eat in your local patch. Join us for a guided foraging walk through a range of landscapes on the hunt for the best wild foods that spring has to offer. Gain confidence in foraging and learn how to use these wild plants in your own cooking.
Edible wild plants are often viewed with suspicion and thought to be bitter or tasteless, only to be eaten as a last resort. But to the forager, our woodlands and hedgerows are full of tasty and filling wild food opportunities.
You’ll be taking a half day ramble along the hedgerows on the hunt for “food for free” all set against the backdrop of the ancient woodland of the National Trust’s Erddig Hall estate. Don’t forget to bring your own basket or bag to grab some wild edibles to take home.
YOUR WORKSHOP INCLUDES:
- A foraging walk through the woods and parkland
- Gaining confidence in identifying a variety of edible plants
- Discovering medicinal uses for seasonal wild plants
- A wild tea taster
- Learning how to forage with a sustainable approach to the habitat
- Understanding the law and your rights when foraging
